Virtual reality (VR) technology is a computer-generated experience that allows you to immerse yourself in a 3D world. By wearing a VR headset, you can step into a virtual world and interact with it as if it were real (3). Virtual reality technology has rapidly emerged as a transformative tool in various industries, revolutionizing how we perceive and interact with simulated environments. With its immersive and interactive capabilities, VR has now found its way into the realm of medical training, particularly in the context of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Effective CPR training is crucial for improving survival rates during cardiac emergencies, and virtual reality offers a promising avenue to enhance the training experience. VR offers a more immersive and interactive learning experience, turning the dull and detached into an engaging and memorable training session. With VR, trainees can put on a headset and find themselves in a simulated environment, where they can practice CPR on virtual patients who react and respond realistically (8).
